ARQIS

Comment: Recommended corporate practice. The high-profile work of Munich partner von Einem for the VW supervisory board in connection with the diesel scandal was once again in the foreground. This has given rise to further work, e.g. for the Audi supervisory board concerning parting ways with an executive. The corporate advice goes hand in hand with ?employment aspects. Due to all the public attention focused on this work, the practice’s considerable basis in ongoing advice to key clients such as Alloheim Senioren Residenz and Katjes, as well as the market-leading Japanese practice in ?Düsseldorf, tends to be somewhat overlooked.
Strengths: German-Japanese work.
Recommended: Dr. Shigeo Yamaguchi (“good communication during the instruction”, client), Prof. Dr. Christoph von Einem, Andreas Dietl, Dr. Jörn-Christian Schulze (“highly professional”, “proven corporate expert”, clients), Dr. Mirjam Boche (“very good expertise and service, they think outside the box”, client about both), Johannes Landry.
Practice: Ongoing advice to many foreign companies (esp. from Japan in Düsseldorf, from China in Munich); stock corporation law (squeeze-outs and litigation); restructuring. Also ?M&A and ?private equity, insolvency advice. (4 equity partners, 9 salary partners, 12 associates)
Clients: ?? VW supervisory board ongoing, incl. restructuring of remuneration for executive and supervisory boards, separation from General Counsel; Audi supervisory board on separation from executive board; Zurich Insurance in connection with settlement Deutsche Bank/Breuer; ongoing advice to Winterhoff, Trigo.
